Sarah, a sophomore at Elkhart Memorial High School, was diagnosed with stage 4 colon cancer - one of the youngest, at age 15, to be diagnosed with such an advanced form of colon cancer on July 3, 2013. With multiple hospitals working on a treatment plan she has had numerous surgeries and has started two intensive rounds of three types of chemotherapy since her initial July 3rd surgery.
As a freshman Sarah was involved with the track team where she ran a 5:33 mile in the spring of 2013. Sarah is a fighter and as she continues to battle this disease we are all encouraged to be #SarahStrong no matter what we face in our daily lives. The SarahStrongRun 5k is to help raise money for the family to pay medical bills and other expenses related to her treatment.
With a heavy heart we report Sarah Crane has lost her battle with colon cancer. On December 7, surrounded by the love and support of her family members, Sarah left this world behind but not before she impacted so many. As we look to the future with so many questions in our minds and sadness in our hearts it is important to remember Sarah’s message—I will fight this and I will win. Although Sarah’s body wasn’t as strong as her heart, mind and faith she has instilled a message within each of us to fight back and beat cancer. Run for Sarah to show your support for this incredible young girl and her family, Run for Sarah to honor your mother, brother, sister, cousin, or friend who fights their own battle against cancer, Run for Sarah to help remember someone dear to you who lost their battle. No matter your reason to Run for Sarah remember the young woman who taught us so much about strength, courage, faith and determination.
